I happened to notice "Mines" on the map whilst looking for something else.

https://canmore.org.uk/site/180982/leebotten-sandwick-mines

The 1st Edition OS identifies as Sandwick Mines and labels as Copper and Iron. And shows West of the Canmore NGR, South of Sand Lodge.

http://pastmap.org.uk/map

Two magazines are shown and one "Old Shaft".

The 1900s map marks then "Disused".
